    What does "inferior" TERM as used by Qt means in English ?

    It's not specific to Qt.

    this is software related forum, is it not ?

    Yes, it is, But is a "Qt software" related forum mainly. And your question/issue is a more general software topic. So it's very likely that you'll find meaningful answers elsewhere as well.



  • I think I can make this question concretely Qt-specific.

    Qt Creator will produce the message The inferior stopped because it received a signal from the operating system. from inside this plugin:

    I may have skimmed this thread too quickly (I am guilty of that offense on many days), but I did not notice any mention of Qt Creator or of a debugger above. However, now that I have located the string of interest in debuggerengine.cpp I feel I can safely assume that we are talking about a message related to using a debugger.

    Therefore, the following might provide helpful definitions:

    An excerpt from the above link on Inferiors says GDB represents the state of each program execution with an object called an inferior., but you will probably wish to read the whole section. (I won't paste the whole section here.)

    Also, I see that from the source code of debuggerengine.cpp that I would expect to see some extra information printed just after the string:

        const QString msg = tr("<p>The inferior stopped because it received a "
                               "signal from the operating system.<p>"
                               "<table><tr><td>Signal name :  ..."
    

    Knowing the precise signal will probably help in your debugging efforts.

    Thanks for reply it is very helpful during debugging , however, I have deleted my original post and my reply TWICE.
    I am nor interested engaging in a discussion when it gets rated.
    I am also offended for having to delete my stuff TWICE.
    I posted it and it is my business if I want to use OFFERED option to delete it.

    If "delete" is not an option - REMOVE IT ! No need to play games.



  • @AnneRanch

    If you would have deleted this stuff here, @KH-219Design wouldn't be able reply to your post.

    You've deleted your original post only and not the whole thread (which will indeed remove everything, so that nobody, except admins and moderators - I guess, can read it anymore).

    You can delete / remove everything by using the topic-tools... The menu with the three vertical dots below your first post will just delete your very first question.
